********911: NEWS MEDIA HOAX********



"We Went to War over Cartoons (the Webfairy)"



"What do you think would happen if the world became aware that there were no hijacked planes that day, that two of the flights didn't exist, that the towers were attacked with secret technology, that the horrifying image which people saw on TV was just a movie, and that media also faked lists of passengers on the non existent flight which didn't hit the North tower, that a missile of some sort was fired into the pentagon and that fake videos and fake eyewitness reports were concocted to try to sell the story? (Gerard Holmgren)"



What really hit the South Tower of the WTC?

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/11/304303.shtml



UK director to make 9/11 hijack film:

http://news.scotsman.com/uk.cfm?id=1793782005

(will the "planes" that strike the WTC look more real in this movie than in the movies we saw on 9/11/01?)





*911: NEWS MEDIA*

Watch the pseudo-alternative media in action!

"9-11 Conspiracists Invade Ground Zero":

http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0537,fergusonweb2,67726,2.html

(think about the Village Voice's title. "Conspiracists invade"...sounds like a plague, pestilence, death. "Conspiracists" is a label with a definitively negative connotation. "invade Ground Zero" sounds like the conspiracists have no right to be there.)



********BIO-WARFARE********



*FLU PANDEMIC*

Bird flu pandemic inevitable, says WHO:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/09/08/bird_flu_pandemic/

Flu oddities (updated 9/14/05):

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20050915/bs_afp/usairoutlookpensions_050915215759





*US ECONOMY*

Microsoft plans to outsource more:

http://snipurl.com/hq5t

--or--

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2002468560_msftgoogle03.html





*CIVIL LIBERTIES*

Court upholds power of White House to jail citizens as "enemy combatants":

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/padi-s13.shtml

"...The sole basis for Padilla’s imprisonment is President Bush’s June 9, 2002 proclamation that he 'is, and at the time he entered the United States in May 2002 was, an enemy combatant.' No attempt has ever been made to actually prove this charge, and the category 'enemy combatant' itself is without precedent in domestic and international law..."



Jose Padilla and the death of personal liberty:

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article10223.htm





*US CONCENTRATION CAMPS: GUANTANAMO BAY*

John Roberts' role in the Guantanamo Bay hunger strike:

http://www.dissidentvoice.org/Sept05/Whitney0912.htm

"...The prisoners are demanding that they be given the opportunity to challenge the terms of their detention in a court of law, a principle that Roberts does not support. He ruled in [Rumsfeld v. Hamdan] that the President was not constrained by international law and that 'the Geneva Conventions do not create judicially enforceable rights...'”



Hunger strike spreads at Guantanamo Bay:

http://snipurl.com/hq5u

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050915/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/guantanamo_hunger_strike



Guantanamo Bay hunger strike expands:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4245864.stm

"...bringing the number refusing food to 128..."

*GEORGE BUSH*

(flash.) Watch Bush fall:

http://www.planetdan.net/pics/misc/georgie.htm



********NEW ORLEANS********



*INTELLECTUAL DISCOURSE: 'CONSPIRACY THEORIES'*

State Department website informs US public that "conspiracy theories" are not to be trusted:

http://usinfo.state.gov/media/Archive/2005/Jul/27-595713.html





*KENYAN COUNTING BODIES*

Recovering New Orleans’ dead subordinated to profit and politics:

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/body-s16.shtml



(from Fonebone):

MORGUE SUPPORT EH ?

Wonder what other Bush pals made money off of 9/11 ?

And for doing WHAT ?

This was just posted on frame-up groups





Kenyon bills itself as the world's leading disaster management company. It provided morgue support services following the 9/11 plane crash in Pennsylvania and the Asian tsunami.





(Fonebone):



In other words, FEMA and then Blanco outsourced the body count from Hurricane Katrina -- which many believe the worst natural disaster in U.S. history -- to a firm whose parent company is known for its "experience" at hiding and dumping bodies.





*NEW ORLEANS: ENVIRONMENT*

Wetland restoration seen as crucial:

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2005/09/05/MNG69EIHUK1.DTL





*NEW ORLEANS: PROFITEERING*

Bush's vision for New Orleans: a profiteer's paradise

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/bush-s16.shtml

"...Corporate profiteering from the disaster is only the tip of the iceberg. Bush’s allies in the Republican-controlled Congress are urging that reconstruction be accompanied by measures limiting victims’ right to sue, establishing school vouchers, lifting restrictions on federal funds for religious groups, suspending environmental regulations on new oil refineries, waiving the estate tax, and enacting a flat tax..."



Karl Rove heads 0 billion "rebuilding effort":

http://www.startribune.com/stories/587/5615598.html





*NEW ORLEANS: ETHNIC CLEANSING*

kurt Nimmo - business elite ethnically cleanse the poor in New Orleans:

Katrina: relocation or ethnic cleansing?

*NEW ORLEANS: CONGRESSIONAL COVER-UP*

Senate kills bid for Katrina commission:

http://snipurl.com/hq5o

--or--

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050914/ap_on_go_ot/katrina_washington

(not even a commission as unethical as the 911 Cover-up Comission is being authorized.)





*NEW ORLEANS: MILITARY DICTATORSHIP*

The big con: Democrats vs Republicans

The illusion of democracy:

http://snipurl.com/hq5m

--or--

http://www.onlinejournal.com/Commentary/091505Friedman/091505friedman.html

"...New Orleans is under Martial Law and journalists have no access and only controlled media events are allowed. What are the feds hiding? Why are military personnel patrolling with weapons as if they are in Fallujah? Why are Blackwater mercenaries (Homeland Security hires) guarding homes of millionaires there? Why were armed Mexican military allowed into Texas? Is this all meant to condition Americans to Martial Law, foreign occupiers and the imminent loss of sovereignty? Bush, Martin of Canada and Fox of Mexico signed a 'security and prosperity' agreement in Spring, 2005 effectively creating a Pan American Region to be completed by 2010..."

Katrina wasn't the problem, it was the 17th street sea-wall:

http://judicial-inc.biz/katrina.htm

New York Times drops hints that the levees were dynamited:

http://snipurl.com/hjwg

--or--

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/03/national/nationalspecial/03mayor.html





*HURRICANE KATRINA: FOX TV*

Fox TV airs program called "Oil Storm" which depicts, in documentary-style, the catastrophic destruction of New Orleans via runaway hurricane. In the film gas prices rise sharply and an economic upheaval takes place.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461695/

http://www.walltowall.co.uk/projects/project.asp?ProjectID=254

http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/oilstorm/main.html

"...The premises of the television-movie were as follows:

1. A super hurricane strikes New Orleans and the Gulf oil installations.

2. Disorder erupts and martial law is declared. The area is evacuated.

3. Oil supply is disrupted catastrophically and prices rise astronomically

4. Economic chaos and depression result

How prescient – indeed clairvoyant – this major television event turned out to be.

And so close to the actual events themselves...(Lynn)"

*ECONOMIC INEQUALITY*

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/unhd-s16.shtml





*ISRAEL*

Israeli soldiers reveal official "shoot to kill" policy towards Palestinian civilians

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/isra-s15.shtml

"A number of Israeli soldiers have provided statements to the Guardian newspaper in Britain confirming the existence of a military policy of inflicting indiscriminate murders and reprisals against the Palestinian people..."

********MISC********





*CINEMA*

Balzac and the little Chinese seamstress:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0291032/

(very strong and satisfying. 'Balzac' concerns repression, longing, stolen lives, stolen memories. Banned in China, 'Balzac' resonates very strongly in the West which is dramatically moving away from intellectual freedom.)





*ASTRONOMY*

Northern lights, September skies:

http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap050916.html





*QUOTES*

"When will Americans wake up and realize that they are losing their country?"

-- Tibor S. Friedman

"It also gives us a very special, secret pleasure to see how unaware the people around us are of what is really happening to them."

-- Adolf Hitler
